Punjab University

Punjab University is long credited with setting standards for brilliance in teaching and research and in science and technology, humanities, social sciences, performing arts and sports. Its glorious past is an inspiration to the faculties and students to excel in their academic activities and achieve brilliant results. The University was established as the University of Punjab in Lahore (now in Pakistan) in 1882. After the partition of the country, Lahore became a part of the newly formed state of Pakistan and a separate university with the name of Punjab University was established in 1956.
Punjab University, over the days, has come to be highly regarded as a respected institution of higher education in the country. While it has continued to focus on the traditional subjects, the vicissitudes of time has seen the university also starting programmes in the emerging fields. In fact, the university has made a number of efforts to ensure a proper infrastructure that supports quality education.

The Punjab University has rightly emerged as a University of national character and stature. The university has attracted a wide number of faculties and students from across the India, and continues to host distinguished scholars from abroad regularly. Students from the SAARC countries, the Middle East, Africa and South and South East Asia also have a considerable presence in the campus. The University has some 122 affiliated colleges that are spread over Punjab and Chandigarh. Recently, the university was selected as the “University with Potential for Excellence in Bio-Medical Sciences" by the UGC.
